Unity was founded on the power of positive prayer and the seemingly miraculous healing of co-founder, Myrtle Fillmore. Myrtle discovered that by repeating the affirming phrase "I Am a perfect child of God and therefore did not inherit illness," spending time in conscious communication with God, and through changes in how she cared for herself in body, mind and spirit she was able to heal herself of Tuberculosis. Using this same practice of affirmative prayer, Myrtle and her husband Charles began a prayer and healing ministry that has become the worldwide spiritual movement known today as Unity.

Unity of Livonia Prayer Chaplains

Our Prayer Chaplains receive in-depth training to learn how to pray affirmatively with you. A gentle voice in the midst of chaos can help us to feel the Presence of Spirit again. Prayer Chaplains are available for private prayer on Sundays after our 10 am service.  Additionally, prayer requests submitted at church, by phone or email are held in prayer for 30 days by our Prayer Chaplains and the Prayer Ministry Team. After 30 days, your prayer request is sent to Silent Unity for another 30 days of prayer.
